Subject: Celebration as a philosophy
Really like this one through and through. Great energy from the band. I appreciate the effort put into Celebration but not so happy with how they have cut out most of the "Speak it...." lines that were present in the original versions Phil played in 2001-02. This song truly represents my take on Garcia's nonpolitical philosophy. Thank you Mr. Hunter for capturing the essence of how to bring positive energy to the planet.

I also found the other new songs "Colors of the Rain" and "Mountain Song" to be particularly good versions. I am happy to hear the band playing new material that I consider so strong. I sense that the band is more excited to play these songs as opposed to say yet another version of "The Other One". In particular the Colors is jumping. I strongly urge anyone to check out the soundboard of this show. The lyrics of the new songs can be heard much better. When I listen to some of the new material and Phil and Bob's singing is not up to the strength needed to match the intstruments, I find myself wishing they would turn over more of the vocal duties to the backup singers. The ironic thing is I've loved the Dead and related bands 95% for their instrumental passages. With the older material, I know all the words, so weak singing is not so much of an issue for me.

Other standouts for me - Scarlet, Crazy Fingers, Terrapin, Blues for Allah, Dew, UJB. I have fun imagining that Blues for Allah is an extension of Terrapin.

Recommended listening for other great versions:
Furthur - Terrapin 4-3-11
- UJB 3-10-10
DSO Scarlet Fire 3-6-08

Out of the 50 or so Furthur shows I have given a close listen, this show is in top 5 for me.

I bought the soundboard recording the night of the show, but I am still really glad you and indy made yours. Each recording has its own nuances, bringing new perspectives to these songs and the show. I'm gonna be digging these recordings for years.

Great sound (despite crowd), great show. Aside from a few songs I don't like very much (Celebration and Colors), this was really a powerhouse. The Crazy is gorgeous, and the Rag is a strong set closer. High energy Watchtower despite Bob's flubs, great Dew & UJB. John's guitar phrasing gets better and better, teasing a lead without overplaying it, suggesting something more coming. I think his interaction with the band on Morning Dew delivers awesomely complex waves of rhythm--on this recording you can hear John leading it, but also responding to what the band is doing at the same time--wow. His chops with Bobby the night before in St. Lou in Fire on the Mountain are as tight and electromagnetic as the old days ever were. I like this music. Thanks Mr. Frank for your success capturing these moments of history.

Subject: crowd noise
comments from another recording at the same venue mentioned significant crowd "participation". Must be the venue or something because it's unlike other recordings. This is great Jeff and thanks for the work. Still a crisp hot show!

Subject: Superior Sound Recording
Had to re-download. This version sounds some what cleaner and more dynamic on my Bose headphones. If you really take the time and listen this recording is superior and should be downloaded. Thanks taper!
